highschool outreach

Lisa Roberts and Christine Lynch of the SEC’s Miami Regional Office talk to high school sophomores about financial basics.

Without financial literacy, making, keeping, and growing your money is especially challenging. We need to teach students the importance of saving and investing early so that they can make, keep, and grow their money.

In support of National Financial Capability Month, the SEC’s Miami Regional Office is once again working with local high schools to teach students the basics about financial literacy.

SEC staff from the Miami Regional Office will participate in outreach programs at 11 high schools in Miami-Dade and Broward counties as part of National Financial Capability Month, the second year in a row it has helped educate local students about personal finance.

“Without financial literacy, making, keeping, and growing your money is especially challenging,” said Eric I. Bustillo, Director of the SEC’s Miami Regional Office. “We need to teach students the importance of saving and investing early so that they can make, keep, and grow their money.”

April is National Financial Capability Month and highlights the importance of financial literacy by promoting programs that emphasize how to establish and maintain healthy financial habits. To learn more about investing basics and find additional investment resources, visit Investor.gov.
